Our Mission/History

The Wood County Recreation Commission was established on September 17, 1945. This was a joint effort by the Wood County Commission, Wood County Board of Education, City of Parkersburg, and City of Vienna.  The goal:  to provide quality, affordable recreational opportunities to the residents of Wood County and surrounding areas. (Vienna withdrew from the Wood County Recreation Commission in 1985 and formed Vienna Recreation)

We are excited that you are visiting our web site. Our goal is to provide a more effective and efficient method of informing our community of the many recreational opportunities available at the Wood County Recreation Commission.  We will be adding, deleting, and updating information often in our effort to make current data more accessible to our participants and their families.

Greyson helped Austin score a basket in the county tournament game on March 6 against Kanawha and the moment was captured on a video which went viral, seen by millions and played on virtually every TV show and station in America. Austin was born with cerebral palsy. The video can be seen on our facebook page.
